SSL awarded Authorised Economic Operator (AEO-C)

We are pleased to announce that Spedition Services Ltd has been awarded Authorised Economic Operator (AEO-C) by the UK customs.


AEO-C merges very well with our already running TAPA Certification. (Transported Asset Protection Association) being a specific quality program related to Supply Chain Logistics Security.


The introduction of AEO-C status is the EU’s recognition of:

  • Compliancy with customs legislation and taxation rules and absence of criminal offences related to economic activity;
  • Appropriate record keeping;
  • Financial Solvency;
  • Proven practical standards of competence and professional qualifications.

An operator with AEO status implies reliability in the traditional financial and customs terms, and hence considered as a ‘secure & reliable trading partner’ by the standards of the World Customs Organisation (WCO).


With the combination of the above (and our ISO9001 / 14001 certification) we can provide business with several internationally recognised quality marks,  indicating that our role in the international supply chain is secure and all our controls and procedures are efficient and compliant.
